Newborn Leah // 11 days new

Little Leah is so darn cute and our patience resulted in some truly beautiful portraits. I not only have the joy of working with newborns but rather the double-pleasure of working with their siblings and family as well - witnessing the love and bond that is shared between them. Children are so wonderful and give their affection so freely I am always touched by the interactions I have in this profession! (I regularly have to pinch myself!)... as promised here are some of Leah's precious first portraits.


While the best time to take newborn portraits is usually under two weeks of age for the sweet curly newborn shots, this little man proved that you can still get some stunning portraits at five weeks, it just requires a little extra patience (that said, what newborn session doesn't require that!?). Boy this little guy charmed me so! Was such a treat to capture some awake portraits for a change, and while he might not have slept as much as some of the little people I work with, we still managed to achieve some darling dreamy shots in his session and isn't he is just utterly delicious! <3 Oh and Ruby the dog was almost as charming with her long lashes and took great interest in our session! 

Newborn Layla // 6 days new

This sweet girl had us on our toes for her portraits but I fell head over heels in love after holding her and experiencing non-stop smiles and gazing into her beautiful big eyes. In fact, Layla insisted on staying awake for the family portraits and actually it was really lovely for a change. Often newborns are cross-eyed but she even looked right at the camera for me! I just love the final portraits, especially in black and white. What a gorgeous family… welcome to the world lovely girl (its easy to see she is simply adored) x 

Newborn Louisa // 8 days new

I had the honor of photographing three gorgeous generations of women for this newborn session, and I really must say that each were so incredibly beautiful inside and out! This is the kind of experience that completely warms my heart and gives me the fondest memories and I hope you all enjoy these portraits as much as I did in capturing them.  Meet the lovely dark-haired Louisa and her proud family...
